The new Rule 41 dictate is going to be law and it’s a doozy, both mind-boggling (for its stupidity) and stomach-churning (for its stupidity) at the same time. Effectively, what the law does is allow any judge, anywhere (including Podunk, Texas), to grant a warrant for electronic surveillance of any US citizen. If you thought the NSA spying fiasco was bad – you ain’t seen nothing yet. http://geekslop.com/2016/rule-41-changes-pass-legalized-electronic-surveillance-of-all-americans
In early 2016, Brietbart News published an explanation of their Alt-Right movement. It attempted to defend and justify the Alt-Rights rhetoric. Let’s take a trip through the manifesto, with quotes directly taken from Breitbart’s published philosophy, and untangle the purple prose to reveal what the Breitbart’s “brainy” Alt-Right really believe. http://geekslop.com/2016/alt-right-movement-breitbart-bannon-manifesto
The first thought for anyone who has examined the Mirai codebase is how well the application was coded. The second thought is how easy it would be to disable. Being a C&C server inherently means you can control the Mirai botnet with it – even to the point of shutting it down – permanently. http://geekslop.com/2016/fear-mirai-iot-botnet-how-to-fix
Maybe other router manufacturers are as magnificently dumb as D-Link but regardless, get rid of all D-Link routers and vow to never buy another D-Link product for a long as your lungs suck in air. The security vulnerabilities present in their devices, especially the DWR-932B router, are so far beyond stupid, well, you’d swear the Chinese company purposely allowed them as a joke on Americans… http://geekslop.com/2016/d-link-router-stomp-burnt-never-buy-d-link
Global Risk Profile provides a spooky array of services including “gathering every legally available information on either a company or an individual” and protection against “hazardous situations such as fraud, corruption, or money laundering”. Today they may have to turn their investigative eyes on themselves as notable hacking group on the Dark Web is offering to sell Global Risk Profile data including confidential email between Global Risk Profile and customers. http://geekslop.com/2016/global-risk-profile-hacked-customer-data-dump
The first Knights of the Ku Klux Klan was founded in Pulaski, Tennessee sometime between December 1865 and August 1866 by six former members of the Confederate army. Its original purpose was to be a fraternal social club with plenty of parody thrown into the initiation ceremonies. However, members began to take the organization seriously and found purpose as a vigilante group targeting black people and white Republicans. http://geekslop.com/2016/original-knights-of-the-ku-klux-klan-kkk-application-1921
They’re calling themselves a part of Anonymous and to prove they’re a lot smarter than the Alt-Righters, threw up a Dox of George Soros (who they say funds Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, etc.). Turns out the “Dox” was nothing more than a nifty little bio (see below). Today they announced a “nationwide Trump Parade and protest calling for the arrest of George Soros”. Combine the events – more bang for the buck, I guess. http://geekslop.com/2016/pro-trump-parade-george-soros-protest-locations-across-us
Conveniently situated off I-35, splitting the authority of Hays County and Guadalupe County, the campus sits near San Marcos River and Guadalupe River – both popular party destinations for students of an age when rational adult-like decision-making is just beginning to take root. Being a “party school” may be a good draw for the local economy – but also presents its own set of problems for the community. http://geekslop.com/2016/texas-state-university-deadly-party-school-culture
There are literally millions of park benches across the world and all of them are fairly standard structures – plain, blocked supports with a horizontal surface to sit on. But some cities have thought out of the box and turned their park benches into beautiful, sometimes stunning, works of art. Check out the collection of unusual park benches from around the world. http://geekslop.com/2016/amazing-park-benches-turn-mundane-seats-stunning-works-art
I wasn’t too happy to hear that Akamai dropped security researcher/writer Brian Krebs last week after Kreb’s website sustained the largest-ever DDoS attack. In short, they basically offered Krebs protection from DDoS attacks until, well, they said they couldn’t. Then they dropped him leaving Krebs to fend for himself. http://geekslop.com/2016/akamais-drops-brian-krebs-security-protection
I was searching for lifelike mice on Amazon today (long story) and found this unbelievably racist Halloween mask of a black man. Tiny ears, white eyes, big lips – just like the racist cartoons of the 50’s. My gut reaction was shock and I began to wonder how the seller would justify placing an item like this for sale. My guess is, they would argue it’s nothing more than a caricature, which begs the question – are caricatures racist by nature? http://geekslop.com/2016/racist-halloween-mask-depicting-african-american-black-man-amazon
Spy? Traitor? How about “National Hero”. The United States wants to label Edward Snowden a “spy” and “traitor” for revealing NSA practices to the American public. The leaks from Edward Snowden regarding the unscrupulous data collection practices of the National Security Agency prompted a US scramble to plug the leak and stem the tide of information that the Guardian was making publicly available. As a result of Snowden’s bold disclosures (and the Guardian who bravely published them), the White House announced a series of proposed reforms meant to increase the transparency of, and the constraints on, the NSA. http://geekslop.com/2013/snowden-leaks-prompt-nsa-restraint-constraint-patriot-national-hero
